Each week, we will base all the activities on a children's story book and half way through the session, join together for story and song time and our volunteers will share some Makaton signs with you.

'Makaton is a language programme using signs and symbols to help people to communicate. It is designed to support spoken language and the signs and symbols are used with speech, in spoken word order.' (from Makaton.org) It's great for younger children who are just learning to speak and also for children with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities). 

Our Monday afternoons are an inclusive session, all children under the age of 5 are welcome. 

It would be great to see you all!
